National Theater Live returns to NYU Skirball with screenings of acclaimed theater from the London Stage. Launched in 2009, National Theatre Live broadcasts have been seen by an audience of over 5 million people at 2000 venues in 50 countries.
A new series, Serious Fun, invites children, families, students and teachers to experience the wonder and excitement of live performance, with age-appropriate pre-and-post show activities, including creative workshops and talkbacks. This year’s Serious Fun productions include Gala, Pirates of Penzance and MAI: Love Heals All Wounds.
NYU Skirball will launch a new series, Skirball Talks, featuring compelling and challenging thought leaders from the worlds of the arts, entertainment, media and politics. The series is free and open-to-the public, and will open on September 25 with author Ta-Nehisi Coates.
